Owned by Cheveley Park Stud, the three-year-old was breaking her maiden at the third attempt having run creditably in warm contests at Windsor and Haydock previously.
Partnered by Freddy Tylicki, the daughter of Rip Van Winkle broke smartly from stall four and was soon in a superb rhythm at the head of affairs.
Warm favourite Warrior Prince loomed large passing the two-furlong marker, but our filly continued to find generously under pressure as the tempo quickened and those in behind struggled to land a blow.
The front two in the market continued their protracted duel up the home straight, but Idealist regained the lead inside the last one hundred yards and stuck her neck out bravely to secure an important first win.
Out of the Listed-placed Illusion and from the further family of Cherry Hinton winner Dazzle, Idealist is fine homebred for her owner-breeders and she will hopefully continue to progress with racing.
Roger said: “This was an important win for Idealist. She was tough and brave today and she has clearly progressed with racing. Freddy gave her a lovely ride and hopefully she can go on from here.”
